Brothers and the Easter Baskets

 Brothers and Easter Baskets
Some photos are just too funny to pass up writing a blog post about. I found a large number of Easter photos in the pile of unsorted photos that belonged to my in-laws.

This is my favorite funny photo of my husband Steve, (the big kid) and his younger brother Michael taken on Easter in 1948.

Clearly annoyed that he can't be the one holding the basket, Michael is complaining and pulling on Steve's jacket.

Before this Easter, the only photos I can find are of my husband's older brother, on Easter 1942. There are many photos because he is the first born child and oh, so cute. He's 2 years old.

But, by 1948, here is the photo of all three brothers. In this massive pile of photos there are FEW photos with all the boys together. The difference in their ages makes it clear, boys are not nuts about Easter egg hunts.

You know how sometimes you run across a Blog Title that captures your interest? I have to say that 'Granite In My Blood' did just that for me today when I saw your blog listed on another Genealogers Blog List.

So, I thought I'd drop you a comment to let you know that I really enjoyed visiting and browsing your very informative blog with your wonderful photos, blog tabs and links.

Thank you. I guess my notification of blog comments is getting stuck in my SPAM again!

So many of my family that came from Scotland were stone cutters that one day I thought that I felt the stone was in my DNA.
